The Benefits of Dental Implants

Our Dental Implant FAQ

A dental implant is made up of three parts: a titanium or ceramic post, an abutment, and a restoration. Built to function like natural tooth roots, dental implants provide bone support and a stable foundation for a single dental crown, a dental bridge, a denture or a full arch prosthesis.

As with any dental surgery, you may feel some discomfort after receiving your dental implants. However, we make certain that the implant surgery is a pain-free experience by using proper numbing and sedation methods. After implantation, you will receive information on keeping any discomfort to a minimum by using suggested over-the-counter and/or prescription medications.

Many patients are candidates for dental implants already, or can qualify after receiving preparatory treatments like bone grafting and tooth extractions. The best way to know if you are an excellent candidate for dental implants is to schedule a consultation. We will use our expertise guided by diagnostics to recommend the solution we feel is best-suited to your goals.

Candidacy for dental implants varies depending on your health history. Some patients with minor bone loss may be immediate candidates for some types of dental implant treatments. Others may do better if they undergo other treatments first, like bone grafting or a sinus lift. For patients with severe bone loss, we are one of the only offices in Austin, TX that is able to place Zygomatic and Pterygoid implants!

When you visit us during your initial consultation, we’ll talk about the best options based on your experiences.

Education and expertise matters when it comes to choosing a dental implant doctor. That’s why you’ll be pleased to know that our dental implant patients enjoy a more than a 98% success rate. We take all precautions to stop dental implants from failing, including monitoring your health and recovery status.

Recovery from dental implant surgery will take a few weeks as your mouth adjusts to having a new set of replacement teeth. However, the closer you follow your post-surgical instructions and care, the sooner you’ll feel like your dental implants are a part of your body.

Dental Implant Costs and Financing

Financing

At Advanced Dental Implant Center, we believe that every person deserves a strong, healthy, and vibrant smile.  To help our patients get the smile of their dreams, Advanced Dental Implant Center offers multiple financing options – if desired by a patient who is not paying cash for their dental treatment.

Our dedicated treatment coordination consultants will work closely with you to help you get your smile back. Financing options can range from low monthly payments to extended payment plans (options vary based on individual patient circumstances). Talk with your Advanced Dental Implant Center patient care team on the options that work best for you.

Our Team Has Placed 25,000+ Dental Implants

As life changing as dental implants are, you shouldn’t trust them to just anyone. Did you know that many dentists who offer dental implants have no formal surgical education other than weekend training courses that can be as short as 8 hours? 

It’s true!  The doctors at Advanced Dental Implant Center are board certified specialists with up to 5 years of residency training after dental school. Furthermore, the doctors at Advanced Dental Implant Center have published more than 60 dental implant related articles in peer reviewed scientific journals and have provided main podium lectures at 150+ major implant conferences.

If you need dental implant treatment, who do you want as your doctor…the weekend student or the experienced expert? The choice is clear when it comes to dental implants!
